The School of Continuing Education (SCE) organised a “5-day Study Programme on the Basic Education in Hong Kong” from 17 to 21 October to equip pre-service rural primary school teachers on the Mainland with deeper understanding of the philosophy and development of basic education in Hong Kong and worldwide.  The programme also broadened their horizons and enhanced their teaching standards and outcomes so as to improve the quality of education in rural areas. 

 

The seminars covered a wide range of topics, ranging from “Overview of Basic Education in Hong Kong”, “Quality Assurance in Basic Education” and “Curriculum Reform in Basic Education in Local Context”, to “Curriculum Development in Basic Education in Selected Global Contexts” and “Enhancement of Learning Effectiveness in Basic Education”. 

 

Apart from visiting different types of schools in Hong Kong, participants attended a class with HKBU students of the Bachelor of Education in Early Childhood Education programme, to share their learning experience, educational philosophy, teaching methods and curriculum design.
